VISAKHAPATNAM: After overcoming various hurdles, the much-touted World Telugu Cultural and Heritage Centre atop Kailasagiri Hill will see the light by year-end. If all goes well, the Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority (VUDA) officials are planning to throw it open to the public before the beginning of the New Year.
The officials want to complete the project with a fixed timeline and get the Centre ready by completing all civil, electrical, art and interior works.
The VUDA is developing the Centre in association with the World Telugu Federation (WTF) to promote the glory of Telugu language, history and cultural heritage as global symbol of pride for the Telugus across the globe.
During a meeting here Friday, VUDA vice-chairman N Yuvaraj asked the VUDA officials and the WTF representatives to pay attention to finishing the works within five months. Film art director Thota Tharani and his team, who took up the interior and art works for the Centre, also participated in the meeting.
Later, the VUDA officials, the WTF representatives and Tharani team visited the Telugu Cultural Centre.
